OSHI NO KO characters Aqua and Ruby will be featured on the front cover of the latest issue of Japanese fashion magazine SPUR. The August 2023 issue will be released on June 22, 2023.
The visual showcases the stylish designs of Aqua and Ruby, wearing their namesake’s jewelry as if they were in a real photoshoot. It was created with the mindset of finding suitable jewelry that matched people struggling in the entertainment industry. Aqua is drawn with a large ring from Tiffany’s adorned with an aquamarine jewel. Ruby, meanwhile, is wearing earrings and a necklace from Dior that has a beautiful pink gradation.
The magazine will also feature a 6-page dialogue between the manga’s original creators Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari.
SPUR has previously collaborated several times with Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure creator Hirohiko Araki, beginning in 2011. His characters have also been added on the magazine’s front cover in 2012 and 2013. He was featured in a special interview in SPUR’s September 2018 issue.
The OSHI NO KO TV anime first premiered with a 90-minute episode on April 12, 2023 and will run for a total of 11 episodes. Doga Kobo is the animation production for the series.
HIDIVE is streaming the anime series outside of Japan and describes the story as:
When a pregnant young starlet appears in Gorou Amemiya’s countryside medical clinic, the doctor takes it upon himself to safely (and secretly) deliver Ai Hoshino’s child so she can make a scandal-free return to the stage. But no good deed goes unpunished, and on the eve of her delivery, he finds himself slain at the hands of Ai’s deluded stalker — and subsequently reborn as Ai’s child, Aquamarine Hoshino! The glitz and glamor of showbiz hide the dark underbelly of the entertainment industry, threatening to dull the shine of his favorite star. Can he help his new mother rise to the top of the charts? And what will he do when unthinkable disaster strikes?
